I may be late to the Kraft party, but this year I've used it more than ever, and see no sign of stopping! This card features the Tidings text and a die by Sizzix under the Tim Holtz signature line. The papers are from a single set called Krafty Christmas by Dovecraft.
I coloured the edges of the tag and the gingham paper with light touches of Vintage Photo Distress Ink (off a sponge), the text is embossed with Cosmic Shimmer embossing powder, Blue Raspberry Aurora. I can't say that word. Aurora.
I stuck the gems on one at a time, they are from an old pack that I can't identify...and you can tell that I didn't have a template!
See what I mean - Kraft and Red again! LOVE this cheeky message! Here's a Dolly Mama stamp from Penny Black, stamped and embossed with White powder. I cut her out but left a decent margin around her...to allow the image to stand out a bit and to avoid too much swearing over the fussy cut job I'd given myself! She's coloured with sponges and various Distress Inks( before cutting out)...no careful colouring here - if I want to repeat this card, the cutting has to be the only slow part! The Kraft mat is embossed with a plaid folder from Design Objectives (DO Crafts) and the printed stock is by My Mind's Eye....the ruled print is the other side of the pattern print, so only one piece was harmed for the making of this card. I've given her gobbly eyes too...well, she is trying to hide a fib after all. The text is embossed with WOW Red powder. The quality of the lettering and the rubber means that these Quietfire stamps are a gift to emboss, and that in my opinion, shows them at their best on an otherwise busy card.
